Mapped: All Lincolnshire COVID-19 deaths by postcode

A new map has revealed the number of COVID-19 deaths across Lincolnshire by postcode.

The data, from the Office for National Statistics, shows where some of the worst hit areas have been for the months of March, April and May.

The figures exclude the deaths of non-residents in the area and are included when COVID-19 was the underlying cause or was mentioned on the death certificate as a contributory factor.

ONS figures see some delays while information is filtered through to them.
